You will be exposed to New Song.

Being exposed to New Song is more than finding novelty; New Song is a metaphor for Jesus, our mediator—the liturgy of heaven. The National Worship Leader Conference is a place to join with others like you, learn from the experience of influential worship leaders and thinkers, and challenge one another to delve deeper into the art of leading worship. We will find New Song in new musical styles, in recovering classic traditions, in the insights and inspiration of thought leaders, and interacting with others like us. In the process, we will discover a new energy and passion for the ministry of leading the musical prayers of our communities.  

You will worship with multiple sounds with multiple styles and along with multiple traditions. 

Worship Leader goes to great lengths to find excellence in multiple voices, styles, and media in order to broaden the conversation of worship. We love contemporary praise band music but believe there is a benefit to being exposed to other approaches as well, including such styles as classic hymns, meditational music, gospel, indie, pop, choral, and many more. Often, attendees are most blessed by a style or a media tool that they are not familiar with. Because of this intentionality, there is no other worship gathering that assembles as many people from as many traditions across the prayer spectrum of Christianity.  

You will be invited to rest.

The National Worship Leader Conference is designed to take you away from the distractions, designed to pull you away from the things that often overwhelm, and place you in a house of worship with others like you to learn and refresh. Musicians, pastors, worship team members, and multimedia artists gather together to find inspiration and renewal. When this happens, we believe your passion will flow forth with a powerful impact on your entire worship community. This is not merely a battery re-charge, this is a time to restore and rediscover your life’s passion and calling.

What People Are Saying

The wealth of information and encouragement that I received from the NWLC is priceless. I’ve already been able to use so many of the new ideas that I learned during the conference within my church worship services; and the conference was only a few weeks ago. I look forward to growing even more next year…I’ve already arranged to take my whole team with me! – Jennifer Lane First Baptist Church Mountain Home, AR

The NWLC is a great place to surround yourself with people who share the same passion in ministry as yourself. Every year I have been I have been encouraged, challenged, and equipped to continue the work the Lord has called me to do. The conference offers something for everyone, so bring your team!

As a first time attender, I was amazed at the effective blending of latest in music and technology as well as meaningful reflection on the role of the worship leader and the place of music and technology in a worship service. The pastoral leadership set the tone for a joyful celebration, while the speakers and musicians demonstrated that worship is truly a verb, providing content and context to take back to my congregation.


A refreshing, inspiring, rejuvenating time filled with amazing worship, helpful workshops, fellowship, and many personal God moments that often elude the worship leader who is so focused on creating those for others. An absolute must for all worship leaders to stay fresh and excited in their ministry!
